Question

A uniform rod of mass 190 g and length 100 cm is free to rotate in a horizontal plane around a fixed vertical axis through its center, perpendicular to its length. Two small beads, each of mass 18 g, are mounted in grooves along the rod. Initially, the two beads are held by catches on opposite sides of the rod's center, 18 cm from the axis of rotation. With the beads in this position, the rod is rotating with an angular velocity of 12.0 rad/s. When the catches are released, the beads slide outward along the rod.

(a)

What is the rod's angular velocity (in rad/s) when the beads reach the ends of the rod?

___rad/s

(b)

What is the rod's angular velocity (in rad/s) if the beads fly off the rod?

___ rad/s

A uniform rod of mass 250 g and length 75 cm
is free to rotate in a horizontal plane around a fixed vertical
axis through its center, perpendicular to its length. Two small
beads, each of mass 25 g, are mounted in grooves along the
rod. Initially, the two beads are held by catches on opposite sides
of the rod’s center, 9 cm from the axis of rotation. With
the beads in this position, the rod is rotating with an...

A uniform rod of mass 3.40×10−2 kg and length 0.410 m
rotates in a horizontal plane about a fixed axis through its center
and perpendicular to the rod. Two small rings, each with mass 0.190
kg , are mounted so that they can slide along the rod. They are
initially held by catches at positions a distance
5.50×10−2 m on each side from the center of the rod, and
the system is rotating at an angular velocity 28.0 rev/min ....

A uniform rod of mass 3.45×10−2 kgkg and length 0.360
mm rotates in a horizontal plane about a fixed axis through its

A uniform wire of mass M and length d rotates in a horizontal
plane about an axis passing through its center. Two small beads,
each of mass m, are placed on the wire; friction between the beads
and the wire is negligible. The beads are initially held on the
wire by catches at a distance d/4 on either side of the center, and
the system rotates with angular speed ω0. The catches are then
released, and the beads slide outward...

A uniform thin rod of length 0.56 m and mass 3.2 kg can rotate
in a horizontal plane about a vertical axis through its center. The
rod is at rest when a 3.5 g bullet traveling in the rotation plane
is fired into one end of the rod. As viewed from above, the
bullet's path makes angle θ = 60° with the rod. If the
bullet lodges in the rod and the angular velocity of the rod is
12.0 rad/s...

The uniform thin rod in the figure below has mass M =
2.00 kg and length L = 2.87 m and is free to rotate on a
frictionless pin. At the instant the rod is released from rest in
the horizontal position, find the magnitude of the rod's angular
acceleration, the tangential acceleration of the rod's center of
mass, and the tangential acceleration of the rod's free end.

A thin uniform rod has a length of 0.490 m and is rotating in a
circle on a frictionless table. The axis of rotation is
perpendicular to the length of the rod at one end and is
stationary. The rod has an angular velocity of 0.37 rad/s and a
moment of inertia about the axis of 3.50×10−3 kg⋅m2 . A
bug initially standing on the rod at the axis of rotation decides
to crawl out to the other end of...

A uniform rod of mass M and length L is pivoted at one end. The
rod is left to freely rotate under the influence of its own weight.
Find its angular acceleration α when it makes an angle 30° with the
vertical axis. Solve for M=1 Kg, L=1 m, take g=10 m s-2. Your
answer in X.X rad s-2. Hint: Find the center of mass for the rod,
and calculate the torque, then apply Newton as τ= Ι·α

A thin uniform rod has a length of 0.430 m and is rotating in a
circle on a frictionless table. The axis of rotation is
perpendicular to the length of the rod at one end and is
stationary. The rod has an angular velocity of 0.32 rad/s and a
moment of inertia about the axis of 3.20×10−3 kg⋅m2 . A bug
initially standing on the rod at the axis of rotation decides to
crawl out to the other end of...

A heavy disk, free to rotate on its axis, is mounted in a light
framework. If the radius of the disk is 0.2 m and its angular
velocity is 600 rad s-1, find the angular velocity of precession
when it is supported with its axis horizontal at a point 0.15 m
from the center of mass of the disk.
